The Key Steps of the production

In the process of soccer ball production, there are dozens of processes, of which these steps are important to the quality of the ball.

#1 Raw materials preparation

Material preparation is the key to your order or to your soccer business.

Nobody can produce high quality balls without the high quality materials.

We always choose the best quality materials for your order.

Generally, these materials are the most popular: PVC, TPU, PU, CTPU.

If you require the balls to pass CE, EN71, Phthalates, PAHs, Prop 65, CPSIA, MSDS, or other test, the material will be ordered accordingly.
